Cura Day Hospitals Group successfully acquires Perth Eye Hospital


The Board of Cura Day Hospitals Group is pleased to announce the successful acquisition of Perth Eye Hospital, a specialised Ophthalmic day hospital located in West Perth. The acquisition was completed on Friday 28th September 2018. 

Perth Eye Hospital has been providing exceptional care and surgical outcomes to the Perth community for over 30 years and in that time, the team has grown to encompass over seventy staff and thirty surgeons. 

The contemporary, purpose-built facility features four operating theatres and caters for posterior, anterior, laser and ocular plastic procedures.

Cura Day Hospitals Group Chief Executive Officer, Peter Freeleagus, said that Perth Eye Hospital is a wonderful addition to the Group’s portfolio and is strategically aligned with the organisation’s objectives.  

“Perth Eye Hospital brings to Cura an exciting opportunity to deliver synergies and drive operational growth on Australia’s West Coast. This acquisition represents our second facility in Perth, a market with attractive demographic fundamentals and an increasing demand for private, same-day hospital services,” he said. 

“I would like to express my gratitude to the staff, management and surgeons at Perth Eye Hospital with whom we have been able to develop excellent working relationships. I look forward to working closely with you in the future,” said Mr Freeleagus. 

With the addition of Perth Eye Hospital, Cura Day Hospitals Group now encompasses 21 facilities nationally, reinforcing its position as Australia’s largest day hospital group.
